  • So sorry I cant make it for the funeral, but will be thinking of everyone and especially cousin Eileen. Songs keep popping into my head, songs that I have heard her sing and she sang them very well. Her and her music will be surely missed. Hugs to all. - Posted by: Lois (Cousin) on: Dec 14, 2018

  • I am so privileged to have known Eilleen Meade. She was such a wonderful friend and a very knowledgeable person. Her gift of music was phenomenal. How she remembered songs so quickly. I remember the time we were traveling to Pine Dock and she said that she learned a new song the same day she was traveling to Pine Dock. When she sang that song, it seemed that she she had known that song for a long time. When she sang and my late father Elmer backing her up up on fiddle, the dance floor was just packed and the people didn't want to sit down. She knew exactly what kind of songs that people enjoyed and how to make the dances so much fun. I'm sure going to miss her singing but now I can just enjoy the memories I had with my beautiful friend. - Posted by: Robert Seymour (Friend ) on: Dec 14, 2018
